If you need to replace your current roof or install a new one then you must hire a roofing contractor. These tips are designed to help you find the best roofing contractor Denver can provide but the tips are universal for all locations. The preliminary question that has to be addressed before you start screening prospective roofing contractors is whether you require a residential, commercial or industrial contractor.  After you have worked out that requirement you can jump right into the screening process.

Qualities to Look for in a Roofing Contractor

The first rule is to only deal with licensed roofing contractors, you could hire a freelancing roofer but you are opening yourself up to serious liabilities so it would be in your best interests to work primarily with licensed roofing contractors. When you have identified all of the roofing contractors in your area then you can head over to their website and take a look at the work they have completed in the past. While looking over the portfolio of work that was performed in the past you should be able to make a list of the top 10-20 roofing contractors in your area.

After you have created a list of the top 10-20 prospects you should find out what they are going to charge you for their services. While comparing the fees that are being charged you have to find out whether the contractor is going to include the cost of the roofing materials in their quote. The cost of these materials can be quite high so it may be in your benefit to purchase the materials on your own and have the contractor do the work. While comparing the quotes find out whether the contractor is going to give you a warranty on the work being performed, if they are not willing to give you a warranty then you should not consider them.
